Mindanao Bloggers Summit 4 | The Mindanao Project: Weaving Voices Online!

Are you ready for MBS4 Zamboanga Experience this October?

Zamboanga Bloggers Community finally announces its 4th version of Mindanao Bloggers Summit, after the MBS1 in Davao, MBS2 in General Santos and the recent MBS3 in Cagayan de Oro. (I haven't attended neither of those activities, kahit ang MBS2 dito sa General Santos. Hindi pa ako active blogger that time)

This will happen on October 29 to 31 and the theme of the said summit is "The Mindanao Project: Weaving Voices Online!". It aims to create a venue for Mindanaoan bloggers to discuss issues affecting them and formulate strategies to help reach their common goal of creating a brighter Mindanao.
